White, White Walls

Dioss and I had planned to meet today so I went over to his place this morning and entered chaos. Next weekend several artists are putting expositions on at their galleries and Dioss is participating in the festivities. When we first started talking about creating a website and how to display the art I had mentioned that most art galleries in the US display their art on stark white walls. I thought this advice fell on deaf ears since he didn't paint a wall to photograph the art against and I've been cropping all of the pictures I've taken so they are just the artwork. Today when I walked into the gallery, Dioss had all of the boys/ men that live with him re-painting the inside of the gallery a stark, bright white. Dioss was a little disappointed that I showed up in the morning instead of the afternoon since I think he wanted to surprise me, but it felt good that he took my advice and it was amazing how much nicer the gallery looked even unfinished and with stuff laying all over.

The rest of my day I laid pretty low because I think (and hope) that I got really dehydrated yesterday because I've felt fairly terrible all day. I really don't want to get sick again. Gatorade has been my best friend today and I'm going to try and get to sleep early. It's starting to get hot again and I've forgotten how much water I need to drink. It's work to drink as much as I need to and my body and mind aren't trained to drink water constantly anymore. Hopefully I'll be fine in the morning.
